Scuderia Ferrari SF70H

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

To force a bigger amount of airflow under and around the sidepod intakes to the back of the car?
Yes, the undercut is massive ...

Interesting front wing too, looks to be seperated in two functions, inside of the wheel and outside of the wheel

The sidepod inlet flows into the vane.

Their turning vanes look more like a second bargeboard!

Actual sidepod inlet is quite deep into the vane structure

Already a monkey seat? Whats really interesting about it is, that its mounted so far back, i guess its possible because of the rear wing being mounted longer backwards, but this gives a much better possibility to manipulate the exhaust gasses =D>

The sideposts are really different, let´s hope they work. The combination of shark fin and t-wing its interesting, Mercedes could have the same if they put the shark fin on the following days.
